Columbus and Central Ohio Weather

A ridge of high pressure will shift east of the Atlantic Coast, pumping very warm and muggy air into the Ohio Valley.

Storms will continue to develop ahead of a cold front and push northeastward, with heavy rain in places. Locally, 1-2 inches is possible in downpours.

The front will stall over central Ohio and wash out over the weekend, keeping the weather warm and muggy, with pop-up afternoon and evening storms. Highs through the weekend will cool off a little to the mid-80s due to cloud cover and periodic showers.

A cold front will bring more opportunities for showers and thunderstorms on Monday and Tuesday, with temperatures in the mid-80s. Slightly cooler and drier air will move in later in the week.
